Be like Eco Evie

June 2019 Feature



Have you ever wanted to make a difference? Eight-year-old “Eco Evie” makes it look easy. Evie and her Girl Scout troop came through for clean water last month. The crew joined an Adopt-a-Beach cleanup at Milwaukee’s Bradford Beach, where they removed buckets of trash from the shoreline. Make a difference like Evie, join a beach cleanup near you!

 “Evie loves nature and wildlife, and she has autism. That’s her super power,” said Kelly, Evie’s mom. And her superhero name is Eco Evie. This amazing young leader is making an impact for cleaner beaches, land and water.  

“The most challenging part of this work is getting people to care about this stuff as much as I do,” Evie shared. “So I’ve learned that you have to make it fun!”

That’s one thing you can count on when joining Adopt-a-Beach, fun! Find a cleanup event near you — or create your own — and hit the beach with your family and friends.

Evie’s superhero work doesn’t stop with Adopt-a-Beach. With help from her mom, Evie has even started a sustainable clothing business. EcoEvie Apparel turns recycled plastic water bottles into wearable fibers for 100% recycled clothing.
